The Jim vs. Pam Office rivalry goes back to the 2004 World Series


As we know by now, It's been a divided Office throughout the Stanley Cup Final with Pam and Jim on opposite sides as Jenna Fischer's Blues take on John Krasinski's Bruins.

Fischer, who grew up in St. Louis, is at Game 6 as her Blues look to close out the B's, and she visited the NBC set between the first and second periods to talk about her fandom and how her rivalry with Krasinski, her TV husband on "The Office" who's from Newton, Mass., extends back to another notable St. Louis-Boston championship matchup. 

So, if you're keeping score, that's Fischer and Phyllis Smith, who played Phyllis on the Office and is also from St. Louis, pulling for the Cardinals. And Krasinski, Steve Carrell (boss Michael Scott), who's from Acton, Mass., and BJ Novak (Ryan Howard), who went to high school with Krasinski at Newton South, backing the Red Sox. 

We all know how that turned out. And again in 2013, too.

Krasinski was quick to fire back on Twitter after seeing Fischer's intermission interview.

Pam waited for Jim all her life on The Office. It might be "my turn" as Fischer said, but we think she can wait a little while longer for the Blues to win the Stanley Cup.
